Picture of the Day: Bad hair day


Paralyzed worms frozen in a falling leaf pattern.

Above, color-stained worms reveal the location of their DNA (blue) and RNA (red) while curling wildly like the hair atop Medusa.

The image, which won third place in the “People’s Choice” category, was submitted along with images from academic fields spanning psychology to plasma physics at Princeton University as part of its sixth Art of Science competition.

The competition celebrates the unexpected beauty that can emerge from analytical work in the sciences.

And in keeping with the Art of Science concept, the three winning artists were awarded cash prizes in amounts determined by the golden ratio, a mathematical proportion whose influence extends to art and architecture: $250, $154.51, and $95.49 for first, second, and third place, respectively.
